She is currently in production on her autobiographical one-woman show, "If I Stop Then Who Am I," written by award-winning New York composer and lyricist, Daniel Mate.
When people hear DeDe's full name, DeDe Murcer Moffett, some invariably ask, "Murcer? As in Bobby Murcer?" It's true.
DeDe's uncle was Major League Baseball player, Bobby Murcer: a 5-time all star and Gold Glove award winner, who played 18 years for the New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs. After retiring from baseball in 1983, Bobby went on to become an award-winning broadcaster, spending 24 years with the New York Yankees in the broadcast booth, alongside announcing greats like Phil Rizzuto, Tony Kubek and John Sterling. In 2008, Bobby passed away after a 19 month battle with brain cancer.
DeDe and the entire Murcer family support the Oklahoma Brain Tumor Foundation and the great work they do for families suffering from cancer.
DeDe is married to stock trader Rick Moffett. They live in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado, just outside of Denver, with their three furry kiddos: Sheba, a 17 year-old blind cat; Sam the General, a Yellow Lab-Chesapeake Bay Retriever (who can't retrieve a darn thing), and Asta the Runway Model, a West German Showline GSD.
